A Creative and Easy to Use Graphic Software Suite Today

By Reinalei Jamir

On Wednesday, May 28, 2014

In my opinion, CorelDraw is one of the most complete graphic software suites on hand today. Despite the inclusion of desktop publishing application that I think, was removed some time ago, it now came with the addition of Corel Photo- Paint, Corel Connect, Bitstream font navigator, and an array of clip-arts.

I do a lot of photo-editing for business purposes and seldom just for enjoyment, and I have been often disappointed on how small functionalities the old Paint Shop tools offered. Upon exploring the features in X5, all I can say is WOW! This suite is an Innovative and slick up to date software package that I would not hesitate to suggest to professionals or even starters.

Overall, CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 is a fulfilling graphic suite tool. The presentation is amazing, and easy to use and resourceful enough to meet the needs of any graphic artist out there. If you need a good graphic software product, then this program is a good deal to have. It is quite expensive but not as high compared to its competitors.

Pros

  • A very satisfying graphic tool
  • Easy to use and versatile

Cons

  • The price is quite expensive

By Rose Sincro

On Wednesday, May 28, 2014

CorelDraw Graphics X5 is a multipurpose graphic design program that helps me express ideas for any media in a professional way. Illustrate, trace, layout, design web graphics, animation and photo edit with a whole solution for visual communication.

I have been using CorelDraw Graphic Suite for almost 10 years now. I use this software because it is simply a better, easier, more handy vector drawing tool than Illustrator. For beginners or for non professionals who need to create basic design work, this software is more easier to use than Adobe Creative Suite. Also, with this software I can now create a good-looking logos and signs to web graphics, animations, billboards and many more. Anything that you make you can publish to PDF for printing.

Overall, CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 is one of the most influential and simple to use graphics programs out there. You must have this version because it will help you to create extraordinary designs faster.

Pros

  • A cheap software compared to others
  • Wide range of materials to draw on
